d. no, because it is not arguable.
Laura's friend counterclaim is appropriate because IT IS BOTH DEFENSIBLE AND ARGUABLE.
The correct option is C.
Driver's education in school is valuable, this is because most teens, who are just starting out to learn driving are students attending different schools in the country. Incorporating driver's education into the school curriculum system will go a long way in reducing the number of teenage automobile accidents that are recorded in the country on a yearly basis.
Previous studies have shown that teenagers and cars are usually dangerous combination; this is because, automobile accident has been recognized as the number cause of death for teenagers between the ages of 15 and 20.
Studies also show that in USA, about 13.2 millions of all drivers in the country are teenagers and an average of nine teenagers are killed everyday as a result of motor accidents.
Knowledge is power, if the knowledge of safe driving is impacted on the students in schools, it will contribute significantly to reducing the number of teenager deaths that are recorded every year.
C. Yes, it is both defensible and arguable.
This counterclaim is both defensible and arguable because it is noted that most deaths happen due to car accidents. That means that the drivers are either careless or they do not know how to drive. Schools are years when the young generation is starting to go on the roads and in coming years will be driving.
To keep everyone safe, driving education id very important for these young drivers that would also counteract car accidents.
A. Yes, it is both defensible and arguable.
